From November 2016 I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Observatory of Geneva (Department of Astronomy of the University of Geneva) dedicated to the search of extrasolar planets and the study of stellar magnetic activity.

Before that I was a PhD student at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and the University of La Laguna (ULL). My PhD thesis deals with the search of low mass extrasolar planets using high resolution spectroscopy. It was also focused on the detection and characterization of radial velocity signals induced by stellar activity, which can be easily mistaken for planetary signals.

Up to now my work has resulted in seven first-author articles, thirteen articles as co-author and several talks and posters.
